Whats happening in this case is that the moisture has been found in effect trying to permeate the boarding, next stop mould followed by rot. The Elite concertina loft ladder can be fitted with a hinge mechanism that allows it to be stowed vertically. As such, it can be used within a vertical wall opening or on a mezzanine floor. Insulated loft floor boards – this is the only insulation and chipboard loft floor board that we offer. Other insulation boards available don’t work as a similar 2-in-1. Remember not to overload the loft leg panels with 100 kg per m2. Don't lay insulation or boards on top of electrical cables. The number of Loft Leg XLs you will need depends on the type of loft boards you are using, the distance between your ceiling joists, and the area you wish to cover. Use the calculator here to see how many you need.

If your loft has existing loft insulation in between the joists, measure the depth of it. Ideally, this base layer needs to have a depth of 100mm and come up to no more than 25mm above or below the joist. A second layer of at least 170mm can then be laid over the top of the joists to get you to the recommended building regulations guide of 270-300mm One of the easiest routes for running central heating pipes and electrical cables is through the loft and over the top of the ceiling joists. Due to this most lofts have said electrical cables and pipework running all over the place.Lay the insulated loft boards at right angles to the ceiling joists and with the chipboard surface on the top. Ensure that each 1220mm long board is supported across at least three joists.

Insulated loft floor boards – these are a two-in-one combination of polystyrene insulation and a rigid top layer made from chipboard. They’re only suitable for creating the top layer of insulation and so still require loft roll be laid for the base layer. They provide a flat and secure surface area - great for storage space and for easy access – but not a structural floor finish to make your loft a liveable room. In terms of the insulation, the one advantage of hard insulation is that you can use less depth to achieve the same “U-value”. In fact you only need to use around 150mm of hard insulation to achieve the same U-value as 270mm of soft insulation. If also lagging water pipes as part of your loft insulation project, we recommend doing this before laying any loft floor insulation. This is because it can be difficult to access, measure and insulate water pipes once the loft floor is covered - especially insulated floor boards. Protect loft insulation from heat sources such as lights using a fire hood What to Consider After Boarding Your Loft? Turn off the electrical supply. This is because boards are fixed with a drill and so the power must be off in case of drilling into any cables.I would add a length of 4 x 2 or whever it takes under the legs to give a 2 " airspace under the boarding. I'm guessing it's over a kitchen or bathroom. Step 9 – Fix Upstands in Place: Using 2 x 1 inch roofing batten, cut a piece to length and fix it along the length of one side of the boarding and then repeat this for the remaining 3 sides

If you want to use the loft space to store items, install raised floor loft legs that you can fix boards to, above the insulation. Leave a minimum air gap of 50mm beneath the boards. Alternatively, cover an existing boarded area with insulation boards rather than insulation rolls To find out how many loft boards you will need simply measure up the area you intend to board out. You need to multiply the width of your loft by its length. Light fittings of various types are also common in lofts, They will either appear as a wire or collection of wires going down through the ceiling to a ceiling rose or in the case of down lighters, the fitting itself protruding up through the ceiling.As with any type of insulation, you need to make sure that the roof is dry and in good condition before adding any insulation. Also, right now many mortgage companies aren’t willing to offer loans for properties with foam insulation in the roof, which can make it very difficult to sell a property with this type of insulation. Loft insulation is an effective way to reduce heat loss and save on your fuel bills. Here we will show you how to fit loft insulation rolls, as well as how to insulate pipes and cold-water tanks Step 6 – Add More Insulation: With more depth now created lay an additional layer of the hard insulation between the new joists. Again make cuts tight to avoid any air gaps. Depending on how deep you existing joists are (75mm 3 inch or 100mm 4 inch) will depend how much more you need to lay to reach the overall required depth of 150mm, which will either be 50 or 75mm

If fitting close to the eaves, maintain a 25mm ventilated airspace between the insulation boards and the eaves. Step 5 The Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has today (Wednesday 22 November) announced a range of tax, benefits and savings measures. We round up the key announcements and what they mean for you. A 300mm Loft Leg XL fixed on top of a 100mm truss or ceiling joist provides a cost-effective solution. When laid correctly like this, the edge of any loft board that meets a joist can then be screwed down and fully supported. Cutting and Screwing Loft Boards and Flooring Panels to Board out the Loft Both employees and self-employed workers will pay less in National Insurance from next year, Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has announced in today's Autumn Statement.


When you access your loft it should be fairly obvious if you have any insulation already in place. If it’s been topped up over the years it will be laid out over the top of the ceiling joists, if not then it will be laid in between the joists. New Building Regulations Rules for Loft Insulation The Loft Leg is manufactured in the UK from recycled polypropylene to ISO9001 standards and has been mechanically tested by independent experts. Provides a ventilation area of 10,000mm2 per metre run when installed between rafters at eaves level. Apply wood adhesive to the timber joints with a small paint brush. Wipe away any excess glue with a cloth. Glue and fit each board as you go, one by one. Step 9
